Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. Think of it as a research assistant that is always working for you – grabbing citations from your web browser; you can use it in the cloud or from your computer (there are plugins for Windows, Chrome, Firefox, and Word). I use it as a chrome extension that syncs with my Windows standalone program, and quickly pull citations from scholar.google.com, library databases, amazon.com, or individual webpages (i.e., nytimes.com). I tag according to how I’m going to use it, and then export ready-made bibliographies following particular style guides automatically into Word.
We have a group library called ANT 291 (it is public but with closed membership). Go to zotero.org, set up an account, and apply to join (use your Davidson email so that I can quickly approve it). Here’s a quick video from UNC introducing you to the full capabilities of zotero.
